I first joined the internet age in 1998 when I created a website for Knight Times, the weekly newspaper I started while a student at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Back then, the internet was considered a novel concept that was in many ways treated as an afterthought to the printed paper.
The internet has come a long way since those early dial-up modem days. The same could be said for my own digital footprint. While the first website I created joined the internet graveyard long ago, I currently own and operate four websites with several more in the planning stages.
Below you will find a brief synopsis of the other sites I manage and write for.
Launched in January 2013, Ballparksbeachesandbeyond.com, or Triple B, as it is affectionately known, was created with the stated goal of combining a love of baseball, going to the beach, and looking towards the heavens as a child of the Space Program.
SouthpawMusings.com launched in 2017 and focuses on my love of baseball. In this blog, I cover the world of baseball one pitch at a time while also proving you can take the Orioles fan out of Baltimore but you cannot take the Ballpark out of the fan.
Launched in October 2022, TheAerospaceHistorian.com is the latest addition to my digital footprint. This website is one of the most ambitious projects I have undertaken since I started a weekly college newspaper from scratch in the dining room of my student apartment so many years ago. The Aerospace Historian is poised to tell the stories of the men and women who made what many believed to be impossible, possible and brought Aerospace to life.
Launching in Spring 2023, the AcmeCoffeeKlatch Podcast is about storytelling. The type of stories I heard as a fly on the wall at my grandmother’s coffee klatch in rural Georgia, and the type of stories I have covered throughout my career as a journalist. The Acme Coffee Klatch Podcast is about letting the story take root by listening to gain a broader perspective about the world around us. Stories and storytellers of all shapes and sizes are featured here. So, in honor of my late grandmother, grab your favorite hot or cold beverage as we gather around the table to explore a variety of topics on the Acme Coffee Klatch Podcast.
